Glass

31 August 2005Small Scale Recycling Technologies (Sept 2005)

Report Summary

In the drive to divert waste materials from landfill, glass although not biologically active is often an obvious choice for recycling as it is both bulky and heavy. It is also
well established in the public mind as being recyclable. Yet in remote rural areas the tonnages diverted are often very small and the consequential costs of collecting and transporting segregated glass can often be prohibitive. However it is possible to process glass into a range of products which can be used locally and this report
reviews the extremely small-scale technologies available.
